11 years old, and still works as it did in the presentation

 

In 1997, I bought the Hoover "Windtunnel" vacuum, as they advertised it was supposed to be better than any other vacuum. Well, yes it was, for the 6 months I had it. It always clogged, and I always had to get it repaired. I had just got it back from...

Shampooer works great. easy to use, repairs seldomely needed

If there were any, would I still have it 10 years later???

Kirby G5- Strong, True and Triumphant

 

First off, I had a GSix which I accidently pushed of our stairway and made very strange noises when I turned it on. So I sold it's shampooer and it's remaining seven attachments-that my dog hadn't yet taken- to a local vacuum guy and sold the G6 to a ...

powerfull, more durable than my G6 and Sentria, transmission

none

Kirby sucked me in too

 

Let me start by saying what a sucker I am. My husband and I moved into our house 4 years ago and needed a new vacuum since ours was broken in the move, so when the Kirby guy showed up on our doorstep he must have seen the words sucker written on my ...

does clean great IF you have carpet

Heavy, bulky, very costly, only uses expensive Kirby bags.

Kirby Stays at my house--

 

I've been considering selling my G5 Kirby, because, 1. It is too darn heavy with its carpet attachment on it 2. It is too darn heavy without its carpet attachment on it. But what the heck, I have hard wood floors throughout most of the ...

Unbeatable. Will do everything related to cleaning, and then some.

Heavy. Expensive. Noisy. Hard to find the bags

Consumer review by:

Awesome vacuum!

 

Let me give you some perspective about from where this review comes. I collect vacuums (mostly antiques, some modern) as a hobby... I have about 30 machines in total. I sold vacuums for Sears for two years and sold Kirbys door to door for about three ...

cleans great, will last forever, tech drive makes pushing easy

bad rep due to unethical sales practices

Consumer review by:

Still satisfied

 

We bought the G5 unit back in 1996 of course from a pushy salesman. Since we all know how that all goes, and how that is the most disatisfying part of this vacuum, I will not mention it from here on. So first the design. This definatly is not like any ...

Reliable, long lasting, powerful

too many accessories, expensive, noisy

Consumer review by:

10 Years and Still Sucks

 

We purchased the Kirby G5 vacuum in 1997. Horrendously overpriced, I'm still not sure how we ended up paying over $1,000 for a vacuum cleaner (note to anyone considering, the price IS negotiable). We have used this vacuum regularly for a decade now. ...

Very versatile, does a nice job, durable

Extremely expensive, heavy, supplies can be a pain to get

Consumer review by:

Just will not work!!!

 

Pretty good suction, can wash carpets also.

Breaking down constantly, traveling to buy bags.

Consumer review by:

Love this!!

 

Power assist, brute suction, many attachments, long cord, HEPPA filter, sturdy, company stands behind product

Heavy, wish it were bagless.

Consumer review by:

BUY A KIRBY, AND LOVE TO CLEAN!

 

I, like many who read this, have had one of the Kirby salesmen enter my home. I already know most vacuums can go over the floor again and again usually removing something that was missed prior. Also, MOST of the attachments would be comparable on ...

Retro style, durable, seemingly indestructible, attachments galore, easy to use, easy to move, IT SUCKS

Still trying to find one...............
